This is true.

Unless the Moon isn't there to compare. The point is that the
Moon looks larger than it's "supposed" to be when it is seen
near the horizon. If it's not there, whouldn't one assume that
it "would be" smaller it it were there?

The other thing is that the apparent brightness if Venus, or
other bright stars or planets near the horizon, are enhanced
because dimmer stars are not seen due to atmospheric extinction.

I don't know, but a lot more have thought that Venus was a UFO,
which is what Jimmy Carter claimed.

Yes, but this was based upon the testimony of 11 other witnesses
who didn't think anything out of the ordinary happened, just
maybe a distant balloon, "blue light" or star. Remember, the
case was a mystery until Robert discovered that the Governor had
been mistaken about the date.

People do make mistakes, otherwise there wouldn't be many IFOs.
This only requires the Governor to have been as human as the
rest of us.

Clear skies,
